The Amsterdam UMC Fellowship aims to attract extremely talented researchers, who have the potential to build, expand and maintain their own successful research group.
The fellowship awards a maximum of €750,000 for the full term of five years (or less for a shorter period, on a pro rata basis), covering the salary of the fellow, the salary of a PhD-student and/or their bench fees.
"The Amsterdam UMC fellowship gives you the freedom to choose which department you would like to work in. For example, because I wanted to be closer to the clinicians, I moved to the Rheumatology department. It allows you to truly shape your own career," - Jeroen den Dunnen, associate professor and winner of the 2015 Amsterdam UMC fellowship.
